Fahrenheit 451

Tim Hamilton
Tim Hamilton

The hauntingly prophetic classic novel set in a not-too-distant future where books are burned by a special task force of firemen.

Guy Montag is a fireman. His job is to burn books, which are forbidden, being the source of all discord and unhappiness. Even so, Montag is unhappy; there is discord in his marriage. Are books hidden in his house? The Mechanical Hound of the Fire Department, armed with a lethal hypodermic, escorted by helicopters, is ready to track down those dissidents who defy society to preserve and read books.

 

The classic novel of a post-literate future, ‘Fahrenheit 451’ stands alongside Orwell’s ‘1984’ and Huxley’s ‘Brave New World’ as a prophetic account of Western civilization’s enslavement by the media, drugs and conformity. Now newly reimagined by gifted artist Tim Hamilton who has previously worked on illustrations for several high profile publications including The New York Times and Puffin’s graphic novelization of Treasure Island. Bradbury’s powerful and poetic prose combines with uncanny insight into the potential of technology to create a novel which over fifty years from first publication, still has the power to dazzle and shock.


"Tim Hamilton, one of the founder members of the webcomics collective Act-I-Vate, is the latest contributor to Smithmag's quite excellent Next Door Neighbours series, which has seen a number of very fine comics creators invited to produce a short story on the general theme of neighbours, which has allowed for some fascinating and often quite emotional and sometimes nostalgic works. Tim's tale, Post Traumatic, is no exception … I think this is a mature, emotional tale that will resonate with anyone who has been in a similar situation." Forbidden Planet International Blog.
